Movies of the Year Award Nominations: 2010


With Oscar night fast approaching, it’s time to hand out my own awards for the past movie year.  As always, only films with an imdb date of 2010 are eligible, which means this will include a lot of films that haven’t been released theatrically in the US yet.

These are the nominees, I’ll have the winners up on Monday, to compare with the Oscar winners.  For my Oscar predictions, check out the Metro Classics website.
